A shortcut wrapper function to get the observed test statistic for a t test. This function has been deprecated in favor of the more general observe().

Usage

t_stat(
  x,
  formula,
  response = NULL,
  explanatory = NULL,
  order = NULL,
  alternative = "two-sided",
  mu = 0,
  conf_int = FALSE,
  conf_level = 0.95,
  ...
)

Arguments

x

A data frame that can be coerced into a tibble.

formula

A formula with the response variable on the left and the explanatory on the right.

response

The variable name in x that will serve as the response. This is alternative to using the formula argument.

explanatory

The variable name in x that will serve as the explanatory variable.

order

A string vector of specifying the order in which the levels of the explanatory variable should be ordered for subtraction, where order = c("first", "second") means ("first" - "second").

alternative

Character string giving the direction of the alternative hypothesis. Options are "two-sided" (default), "greater", or "less".

mu

A numeric value giving the hypothesized null mean value for a one sample test and the hypothesized difference for a two sample test.

conf_int

A logical value for whether to include the confidence interval or not. TRUE by default.

conf_level

A numeric value between 0 and 1. Default value is 0.95.

...

Pass in arguments to \infer\ functions.
